Special Event Permit Application

Special Events Permit Application

Welcome to the City of Huntsville’s Office of Special Events! Our office ensures Huntsville events have proper approvals, communicate with the host neighborhoods and operate safely. We also act as an internal and external resource to the event community on overall event coordination, permitting, and management.

Though obtaining an event permit may seem daunting, we want to help you navigate the process. Our FAQ page answers many common questions.

  • Minor Event permits are optional, and should be submitted no later than 10 days prior to the event.
  • Basic Event permit applications must be submitted no later than 20 days prior to the event.
  • Enhanced Event permit applications must be submitted no later than 30 days prior to the event.
  • Events that involve serving or selling alcohol require alcohol license applications six (6) weeks prior to the event.
